Asking: $1.95 million
Yes, this is a broker/owner sale ("add 10% on to the asking price for arrogance," says one commenter), and yes, the common charges are a little high, and yes, the first-floor layout is a little on the long and narrow. But consider this:
If you are so inclined - there is a small open den off the dining area that can accommodate a chamber music quartet. The 2100 sq.ft. loft-style layout lends itself well to the lifestyle of those whose home is a retreat to stretch out in, disengage from the world, and relax, as well as those whose idea of home is a space for the weaving of their personal social fabric, the warp and weft of intimate dinner parties and elegant soirées.Hard to put a price tag on that, wouldn't you say?
